Madrid Madness

Aviles was wonderful, Celsius sensational, spent my mornings signing endless copies of my books, and my evenings drinking in sidewalk cafes with Joe Abercrombie, Lisa Tuttle, Colin Murray, Diego Cruz,Ian Watson, Cristina Macias, Adam Nevill, Dimitri The Russian Guy, and many Asturian friends.

Now I'm in Madrid, doing endless interviews for Canal + and posing on their Iron Throne. It's hot here, but life is cool.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah! I'm also back in my city, Madrid, after seeing you in Avilés. You were amazing there! Now my signed copy of Storm of Swords is another precious item of my "Personal treasures collection" ^^

Oh, indeed. It's damn hot in Madrid now. Above all, the contrast between Avilés and Madrid is really big, in my opinion.

Have loads of more fun in Madrid before departing to another city, and please... Come back someday! :)

Glad you enjoy your stay there! Me too! (By the way, I'm Tyrion, the guy who ate with you the first day and lent you his wig for you to go unnoticed).

I guess bearing that river of fans wasn't easy!
It was a pleasure to have you here in Asturias, I hope you enjoyed what you saw and experienced, wich, no doubt, wasn't enough.
Our land has astonishing atlantic landscapes, towering limestone peaks, deep beech forests, a real natural paradise. It's also very interesting for its cultural heritage, partly celtic.
I hope you can come and visit again, more for pleasure than for work, I'm sure you'd find some good inspiration for your art.
Keep the nice work, George, and thanks!

Ahhhhh . . . wishing I could be in Spain now instead of having to wait till next year, when there will be no benefit of meeting the most amazing author in the world . . .
Oh well, guess I'll have to just wait out till you someday find yourself in Philadelphia, PA :)
And sorry for posting this for the umpteenth time if all my other ones end up showing up . . . .

How about catching a train to Portugal again? We're just next door ;D (Yeah, I know you were here in March...still...we have delicious sea food this time of year!:P)

I hope you are having fun and get a chance to taste some good spanish food in Madrid. I recommend eating Cocido Madrileño at Taberna La Bola. I am pretty sure you will enjoy it and it will be a shame if you don't get to taste it before you leave! ;)
I'll looking forward to you coming to Barcelona! Hope you enjoy your stay in Spain.

Re: Help please!
See the FAQ on my website for my advice to aspiring writers. Sorry, but I don't have time to enter into a correspondence, but good luck with your book.

Meeting you at Celsius last saturday was amazing, to have your signature in my favourite book, unbelieveble.
I'm looking forward to meet you again, ("perhaps" as you said to me on saturday when i asked you) next year in Semana Negra in Gijon.
Take care of yourself, and keep on delighting us with your work.
It was nice to have met you.

Be carefull !!!
Mr. Martin, I highly encourage you to start watching your back now. You of all people should know that bad things start to happen for people who sit in THAT chair...

On a more serious note, I am glad that you are enjoying yourself. After bringing so much excitement and joy for so many people, I can't think of anyone better suited to have times of joy and excitement for himself.

I know you are incredibly busy, so I'd really appreciate if you respond. What songs in ASOIF currently have music, and what would your perspective be on someone writing either music for songs with lyrics in your books, or even new songs? I understand if you would lump new lyrics with fanfic, and that is why I'm wanting your perspective, and would not proceed without permission. Currently, I'm working on some of the song of John Dowland(English lutenist) on my mandolin.

Thank you for your time,
